." "rollback: repealing big government before the coming fiscal collapse" how would you describe the premises behind your book, and what are your main points that you are trying to get across? >> well, only about 5 percent of the book deals with fiscal issues and the budget. i would rather jump out a window than read or write a book. to set the stage we're on a trajectory left or right, democrat or republican, we have to admit can't be sustained. obviously some very wrenching changes are coming. the rest of the book is sort of gored toward kind of revisiting some of the arguments by which we were sold big government and wealthy. we have this program and -- what i'm trying to suggest when we have to cut back, it's not going to be the terrible catastrophe that the nightmare scenario to the contrary, the silver lining of the crisis it will cut back on some of the things and with give a lot more scope for entrepreneurship and freedom. >> what are one of those budget items that you could see being cut back that could bed a venn teenage use? >> well, like a book like this and a publisher like mine,
, a lot of people think that government and big business go hand in hand. >> they do go hand in hand but governments' playing field for power and so business introduces itself there to guide it in the directions it wants to go. but of course a lot of people in big business or in the financial community would prefer it if they went on in their way unimpeded by government, and toso that's another front in this particular power struggle. >> host: one of the points you make in "power inc." there are multinational corporations who make more money, control more money, than most of the governments on earth. >> yeah, big companies like wal-mart, you know, have more employees than some of the smaller countries in the world. but a company like exxon has revenues that are bigger than the gdp of all but probably 30 or 40 countries on earth and, therefore, it has resources that allow it to set up offices in more countries than most countries have embassies. put more money towards influencing outcomes in political campaigns to a greater extent than almost any countries are able to do. so they have
more on the government and thanks to the method it's the same thing right now. there is overwhelming contribution that this is the time having the government spend more would be freed, putting people to work with the unemployed that would be basically doing nothing and essentially it is very easy and very hard politically because it is hard to persuade people about the need to do that which is why some of us books. [laughter] >> some of those would argue it's like a sugar pill for the transient work of time and then you fell back. i think it's a very interesting story. why did little more to, why didn't we strike back in the depression? in fact there was montgomery ward was a major kept waiting for the depression to comeback basically lost their position in the marketplace. it is the private sector debt if you had the debt that left people stranded with too much debt and that happened during world war ii that we had first of all the unemployment that made it easy for people to pay down debt plus a significant amount of inflation to reevaluate the debt so you can into world war ii for

's book titled the state of ridge, where the government sponsored enterprise in the financial crisis, clearly tom was years ahead of his time at his predictions turned out to be all too accurate. a very long track record of being one of the 04 most forecasters of the state of the financial-services industry but when he is not writing books he spends his time as a fellow at the center for dance to governmental studies at johns hopkins university. tom also served as staff on the financial crisis inquiry commission and in my opinion there are a few things i would disagree with the commission's findings one thing i know for certain is the commission's report was stronger because of tom's involvement. the book is also informed largely by tom's experience on commission staff. we are fortunate to have with us alex pollock to offer his thoughts on the book. alex is resident fellow at the american enterprise institute. i got to know alex a decade ago when he was president and chief operating officer of the bank of chicago from 1991 from 2004 and i would also say i always found him to be one o
, sovereign nations and the leaders from various states began to realize we need a stronger federal government so they wrote the constitution. many americans were opposed to the constitution and became antifederalists. so they were the federalists and antifederalists opposed to each other from the very beginning. from the signing of the constitution. the antifederalists gradually became known as republicans and then democrat republicans. so when john quincy adams was running for office, and you now have the republicans, democrats republicans running against the federalist and he was the last of the federalist. the federalists ran this country from the beginning. washington, adams and they were the people that ran the country in the elite, the constitutional and the states allow property owners to vote. gradually universal suffrage came, not involving women. don't get your hopes up too high. it was white male suffrage but you didn't have to be a property owner and that is what pushed of the elite out of power. adams says jefferson, monroe, all the plantation owners and elite leaders permitted t

about pesticides and whether the government would do anything about it. whether that to the question, there is a host of questions that turned out not to be emulated, although it seems that the time. several reporters asked about the increase in soviet shipping traffic to the island of cuba and nobody knew what was happening or what that meant, but in a couple of a couple of our most vivid know exactly what that was about. that was not in the ad and related to a person was talking about in "silent spring." i hope you could also hear the president referred to this carson spoke. we are going to look into this problem, especially in light of this carson spoke. what's interesting about that is in 1962, no further introduction was needed. everybody knew who this person was. those racial%, celebrated author three books about the ocean on the beautiful lyrical books about the ocean. wonderful, transforming experiences for readers. carson had a way of taking science and translating it to beautiful narrative that everybody could relate to. so should become one of america's most celebrated and
favorite and this -- the government only made them 1983-1997.what they decided to do to make it special was doing commemorative+ dollar and they put the set together and in this little case here and a solid as a prestige proof set and they just said it was a special proof set at the time. they did it againcommemorative dollars in all of the sets are silver so there is a tremendous intrinsic value in the sets as well as nearly a pound of silver is in the cents. then in 1985 they did not do and they decided they were really popular so let's revamp this and they to do a commemorative dollar ended in 1986 and change the packaging and holiday prestige proof set. in 1986 for the commemoration of the statue of liberty they did the statue of dollar that all proof set from the u.s. government go in this as well. new look at this for $1,699 and you get all of thisre kennedy half dollar proof sets and remember the that is $34.50 and $56.50 and $34.95 and $55.50 etc.. they're all valuable also is all the dollars and everything else. there is the constitution dollars of 1987 and 1988 is another ol
to be everybody got to say what they want under the circumstance. the idea that the government could decide what you said even leaving my mom and my dad in charge. in the journalistic society free speech so should be the role and i really believe that. i even did the six additional credits of my own design on the history of the freedom of speech and despite all of that, i was utterly unprepared for the kind of cases i would see on college campuses utterly unprepared and it took a little bit about this and this is one of the reasons i wrote the book because i feel like i've been banging my head against the wall writing for the post since 2007 my entire career and i started getting people coming back to me to say sure, students get in trouble for almost anything and most campuses have speech codes and sure people don't talk to each other because they are afraid of getting in trouble. what's the big deal? and i found that the terrifying question to be asked, and "unlearning liberty" is mauney response to the argument of why the free speech on college campuses matters. sick to begin with what i'm ta

, to us, as reporters, he said, you know, the difference between us and the other branches of government is we don't need you people. it was quite an icebreaker, and -- but by implication, the supreme court doesn't need book authors, either, and so some of the justices i know are not very interested in helping or talking to reporters. so, how did you good about your work? in this regard? >> piercing the privacy. >> well, let me say at first, what i want for creams, is jefery toobin's sources because you have done a wonderful job, and i don't know how, pulling back the curtain. >> can i say about my sources. i call law clerks and speak to justice, not all of them but some of them, and -- but the best thing i did for "the nine" the single most useful trip i took was to west lafayette, indiana. what's there? the c-span archives. brian lamb went to purdue and sent all his archives there. the justices are on c-span a lot, and you'd be surprised how much is out there in plain sight. they -- a lot of these justices like to talk, and they like to talk about themselves, which is a common phenomen
should not be looked at to populate any kind of -- whether it is home or the workplace or government position, simply so that they can go in and replicate the same stories that get hold about that space so we can think of politics in the same way so the gifts we have women's bodies in those positions that if that is what i am trying to encourage, a different conversation, a different conversation about what it means to be in a space, how we think about a space or a neighborhood or a community, how we think about the role of the home that is more than an economic unit. in terms of policy, if we continue for example to think of a housing market as simply a measure of our economic growth, we are going to miss the real meaning of those various units, the home, for people. we can't simply think about it in terms of economic growth because that encourages us to make homes more and more expensive because it is good for the economy, without thinking about what it does for those of us who are looking to find homes in america.
